Me and my ex husband got married when I was 20, 9 months later had a baby girl who was a miracle since the drs told me I would never be able to have kids. But after we prayed 4 kids later it was truly a blessing . But over the 6 years we were married he hit me and abused me physically and mentally and emotionally bad. He had 3 kids during our marriage also.
I finally decided I couldn't stay just for the kids cause as they grow up it wouldnt be healthy for them to live in a unhappy and unstable house with both parents rather than a happy home with just mom. My kids haven't seen their dad in over 4 years he calls once every three months. My oldest daughter who is 10 has been realizing alot and been very sad. Talking to the school counselor crying drawing pics of how she feels .. Which by the way is very heartbreaking..
I have been taking care of my kids physically financially and emotionally by myself for over 5 years its hard at times but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I work 6 days a week and sometimes have to sacrifice time with my kids to make money to make sure we have what we need ... Maybe this story will enspire some. God deff takes care of us..my blessings
